In case you might have noticed I am a little bit behind with my daily posts. The reason is super positive as my business is kicking off! Whoop whoop. But I will definitely try to keep it up and to keep track. Today, while being in the Gym, I was listening again to Grant Cardone‘s book “the 10x rule”. In one chapter he lists the habits of successful people.
10x rule and habits of successful people
One of those habits of successful people is to be uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable in the sense of leaving the comfort zone. Choosing to do the things you are scared of doing. Pushing your own boundaries. Someone ones said “a comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing ever growths there”. The magic usually happens out of the comfort zone.
Taking full responsibility and decisions
Funnily enough I had today also two totally unrelated conversations about this topic of becoming uncomfortable. Of taking full responsibility for one’s life and make things happening. We all have the opportunity to choose, day in and day out, whether we let things happen to us or whether we take full responsibility and decide.
There is a massive power in the thinking and the state of mind of “I can do everything but I don’t have to do everything”. Do you already decide or do you react?
Of course, we can’t always influence the things around us. Events are happening to us and to our loved ones. We get rejected and we don’t get always what we want in the first place. Pretty often actually we won’t get it even in the third place. But we have the option to decide how we want to react when things are happening. Do you want to accept the rejection? Or do you stand up, adjust your crown and try again? Do you feel like a victim to all the stuff happening towards you or do you decide proactively to act?
We truly have the power to decide how we want to live our lives.
